Diamond Book Distributors has signed a worldwide distribution agreement with Goodman Games to exclusively distribute their products to North American and international book markets. Distribution to the comic book specialty market is handled exclusively by Diamond Comic Distributors.
Goodman Games is a tabletop roleplaying game publisher known for their classic adventure, Dungeon Crawl Classics Role Playing Game (DCC RPG), first released in 2012. Grounded in the sword and sorcery fiction that underpins classic roleplaying games, DCC RPG is the most popular tabletop RPG in the sub-genre now known as Old School Renaissance.
“You’re no hero,” the DCC RPG guide states. “You’re an adventurer: a reaver, a cutpurse, a heathen-slayer, a tight-lipped warlock guarding long-dead secrets. You seek gold and glory, winning it with sword and spell, caked in the blood and filth of the weak, the dark, the demons, and the vanquished. There are treasures to be won deep underneath, and you shall have them.”
DCC RPG has sold more than 100,000 copies through 11 printings for traditional game and hobby channels, and the broader line of DCC adventures has sold more than 750,000 copies. To date, Goodman Games has released more than 40 DCC adventures. Each adventure is a pre-designed scenario that expands the options available to a DCC game. Goodman Games also publishes popular titles such as Mutant Crawl Classics, Xcrawl Classics, Fifth Edition Fantasy, and the hit Original Adventures Reincarnated series. Diamond Book Distributors is offering Goodman Games’ full line of products to the book and comic trade.
“Diamond is the gold standard in book trade distribution,” Goodman Games founder Joseph Goodman said. “They’re selective in which RPG publishers they represent, and we are very pleased to be working with them. Their staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and extremely competent. It’s a pleasure to be working with Diamond as a company, and all the individuals who make up Diamond’s team.”
“Diamond is delighted to be the global distribution partner for Goodman Games,” Diamond Book Distributors President Tony Lutkus said. “Goodman Game’s dedication to classic RPG adventure is tremendous. Their Classics rulebooks and adventures channel the best in fantasy, horror, sci-fi, and sword and sorcery storytelling and are the perfect guides to players who want to take the next step in making their own exciting and imaginative games. Dungeon Crawl Classics and Goodman Games’ other books are perfect additions to the core RPG shelf.”
